Abstract

The PADME experiment, hosted at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati in Italy, is dedicated to the dark photon search. It looks for the reaction $e^{+},e^{-} ightarrow A',gamma$, where $A'$ indicates the dark photon. The $550, ext{MeV}$ positrons beam that impinges on electrons, coming from an active diamond target, allows to scan $A'$ masses up to $23.7, ext{MeV}$. In this context, the segmented electromagnetic calorimeter plays a fundamental role, since it measures the final photon four-momentum. It consists of $616$ BGO crystals displaced in a cylindrical shape of $approx29, ext{cm}$ radius with a central square hole of $5$ crystals side, to let Bremsstrahlung radiation pass, to limit the calorimeter trigger rate. Each crystal is read by a HZC XP1911 type B photomultipliers and their signal is digitised by means of a CAEN V1742 board, taking $1024$ samples at $1, ext{GS/s}$. Here we report in detail the solutions adopted for the calorimeter together with the results obtained in tests performed on a small prototype and on single scintillating units.
